I love finding new ways to create DIY projects using my Designer Templates! There really are endless uses for these dynamic tools.

Just recently, I used the Scallops Set to create this simple, yet adorable, hair accessory for my daughter.

 All you need to make your own is:

  • Felt: whatever colors you would like…you only need a few!
  • Needle
  • String
  • Scallops Designer Template set
  • Other Designer Templates, if you want to include additional layers
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Button for the center (optional)
  • Hair band or clip

It is so simple, just follow these steps:

  1. Trace and Cut out the scallop design from the felt that you’re using.
  2. After you cut it out, thread some string along the straight edge of the scallop.
  3. Pull and gather the two ends together until they create a round flower.
  4. Finish by tying the two ends of the thread together into a knot.
  5. If you are adding additional layers, simply hot glue them to your circular scallop.
  6. Adhere this to a headband, or hair clip using hot glue.

It is that simple!

Really it only took a couple of minutes to make, and was way cheaper than buying one. I was able to customize it with the colors I wanted, and my daughter loved it!

And even better? I then took a few adorable pictures and used my Designer Templates in the traditional way to create a layout preserving the memory and my daughter’s excitement at receiving the handmade, heartfelt accessory from her mommy.

Here is a pic of that layout. I only used the templates that are on sale for this month (July2017) which, as you can imagine, can be used in a variety of different ways for scrapbooking and other fun projects!
